DESTDIR=/ has been deprecated, because of complications in updating
things in stages.

The best way is to do a full build and release into a standalone
directory, and then install the result.

Especially for a change from 1.6 to -current, which involves some
fairly substantial changes to userland tools - such as shared
library relocations and dynamic base tools.

There has been some considerable discussion of these topics recently
in current-users and elsewhere; check the archives for more detail.
